This is a guest post by Sarah Castro, a mom whose children attend St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School in Greenville. She writes about how Catholic education provides an enduring foundation for her children's lives, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A hallmark of Catholic education in the Diocese of Grand Rapids is the welcoming community where every child is honored and celebrated.
Our mission is rooted in Christ, who calls us to value and love all people, no matter their faith or culture; anyone can find strength and meaning in our schools.
This spirit of community extends even to when school is not in session, as shown by this testimonial from Steven Kelley, a parent at Trinity Catholic Elementary School:
When we asked parents how their entire families are benefitting from their child being in a Catholic school, they expressed a clear appreciation for having faith as a part of their childrens’ daily lives, including in every school subject.
We recently asked parents about their child’s dreams for the future and how their Catholic school is helping him or her get there. They shared some amazing testimonials!
